A truck loaded with beech wood arrives almost every day at HABA’s production plant. The first stop is the kiln then it’s on to the toy production.

HABA employees scrutinize each piece of wood, saw it and allocate the wood to the different areas of the toy production. In order that the jolly ball Paul can emerge from the beech wood, a technical drawing based on the designer’s design is first required.

Finally, Paul receives his cheerful cheeky face imprint.

Based on this drawing and corresponding work plans, ball Paul then passes through the individual manufacturing steps, in which he receives his shape, color, and appearance. First he gets his round shape in the turning shop. It’s then on to the paint shop, where there are several color drums filled with water paints in a variety of color shades. Here ball Paul can take a dip in the color immersion bath!
